You graduated High School in the digital world. I'm not sure how to express that year in binary, as I don't know which year it was.

I graduated High School in the analog world. I'm damned proud of which year it was.

Class of 69!

As I understand it, you're '56 vintage (thereabouts anyway) so how did you manage to graduate high school in '67? I'm perfectly prepared to accept that it was an early manifestation of genius (rather than a recent manifestation of senility...)

Hmmm, not sure I got ya; did you think I meant I did? Sorry--crossed our wires there--you wouldn't insist I have to have graduated in it to view it as a good year, right? I just knew a lot of folks that did in the SF area, and it was a good yr to come of age, so to speak. My yr, mid 70s, was a bit blah, if you follow. If I could've picked a yr to graduate from HS it would've been 67, let me put it that way...but, of course, looking back on it now, I am happy enough to have been stuck with the yr I was. Led Zep was king, disco was around the corner, and 70s butt-rock was in full swing.

Hmmm, well, maybe I do wanna swap still...?

OK - forgive me. I naively assumed (more fool me) that since high school graduation was the current topic that your post might just have had some glancing relevance to said discussion. I apologise for failing to anticipate that your maverick nature would latch upon this opportunity to nominate some random date with obscure though no doubt meaningful significance to yourself. Furthermore, if the tongue in cheek nature of this riposte is not obvious to you I shall feel obliged to deliver a swift kick to your posterior.

Yes, Sir Wm. how is it you managed to graduate at such a tender age.

and a hearty +1 for Monte's "Class of '69"
